that we are sacrificing the needs of the city to placate a few cabdrivers. this reminded me of something i read 20 years ago, from a book by joseph brosky, a russian, who grew up in stalinist russia, he wrote an essay on evil. at the end it says, no matter how evil your enemy is the crucial thing is that he is human. although incapable of loving another like ourselves, evil takes root when one man starts to think he is better than another which is what you have here. you are listening to these people how you are ruining their lives, and you are saying there's nothing we can do about it because you are serving the public. what you can take from this is a city small amounts compare to what the city needs, this is not going to solve the city's deficit problems because the deficit problems are endemic. the start of the federal government. it starts with a policy of war. does not come from cabdrivers. what you are doing would have little effect of the budget robin; it will have a devastating effect on those people. i know this will not have no effect on director hein

their course options. at the same time after we did that, there was this giant deficit we felt through the city -- through the state. then it was how we implement these new requirements while we experience these cuts. so school sites experienced it because they got less money than they had before. and why you heard some going from a seven to six-period day to make those choices to support their core program. they have all done these different cuts. and then we had the additional hit of what happened from the state with the after-school fund. because we weren't anticipating that. >> right. >> and i think that the school district eliminated evening schools that we still had that safety net. now we have an awareness and responsibility to reallocate and reprioritize in this new budgeting cycle. to be sure that we are meeting the needs of the students for graduation in the school district. i am not in a position to say 2.7 but to meet the needs. >> this may be a question more to young or the superintendent. which is to say that what we see before us is a supplemental request for $2.7 million. to pro
to my colleagues. i have another meeting. i want to thank all the city departments and the warriors and also many of our community for being here today. i just wanted to state one of the public commenters had talked about the pace of the project, and i agree. i actually do think that this project is moving very quickly through the process more than other ones and for a project this size. but i do also want to understand there are some clear delineations in terms of timelines the warriors are working with as well. so, i think there is a balance that we need to strike. i think a better process and more meaningful process will come out with a better project which will still create jobs. i don't think anyone is in conflict. i really appreciate hearing from members of labor also supporting a meaningful process because i think that means a better project in the end. i think that's a good thing. i did want to address the point about the holidays. we heard that comment and, so, because of that we did move the scoping meeting to mid january so we will not be holding a scoping meeting in dece

bond measure earmarked to provide renovations and improvements to our city parks. one of the reasons why that is so important to us here in the council and also to the mdc, these renovations advance access in the facilities. this is the way that we get to renovate recreation centers and playgrounds and bathrooms and trails. it was important for our transition plan work to have this funding source. that was a successful outcome. one of the benefit of the bond measure is that these improvements that have been taken place, different recreation centers, it was more accessible disaster shelters. these rec centers are on the list of available shelter site. back in 2005 we first started the survey, a lot of them were not renovated and are not successful. as would go back one by one was added to the list. that has helped us a lot with the 2008 measure in going forward with this 2012 measure. prop c, affordable housing trust fund. as you know, when governor brown eliminated redevelopment agencies statewide we lost huge resource for affordable housing construction. this bond measure
